Lindsey Graham Threatens to Call Pelosi to Testify

It seems that good Lindsey Grahama has locked the bearded, alternate universe Lindsey Graham in a closet, and showed up at the first session of the Democrats’ terrorist interrogation show trial:

“I don’t want to retry Nancy Pelosi, that’s not my goal but if you’re going to accuse these people in the Bush administration of being evil and committing a crime, then if she was told about [interrogation tactics] I want to know what she was told,” Graham said during a break in a hearing on Bush-era interrogation practices.

Graham spoke to reporters during a Judiciary subcommittee hearing entitled “What Went Wrong: Torture and the Office of Legal Counsel in the Bush Administration.” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), the chairman of the Judiciary subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts, convened the hearing…

“Trying to understand what she was told is almost impossible, her story changes almost every day,” said Graham.

Whitehouse said Wednesday’s session was the first of what he hoped would be several Judiciary hearings on torture. Those other sessions have yet to be scheduled.

Even the Left recognizes Pelosi’s lies for what they are. If anything, Graham does not go far enough. The Speaker is third in line for the presidency. Her actions and statements are watched by our allies and enemies alike. She has waded too far into this to be allowed to slink away once her bluff is called. She needs to explain herself or resign – or both.
